Project Description

The aim of this project is to develop and establish a state-of-the-art fluorescence imaging facility within the
Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University. In this proposal we aim to establish a total internal
reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) combined with high speed epifluorescence imaging workstation that
will be tailored to specifically investigate the fundamentals of blood cell, and vascular cell function. The
overarching aim of this application forms part of a broad bioengineering research program aimed at developing
novel lab-on-chip technologies for basic cell biology and haematology.
